You are more than your scars – #ScarredAndSexy

Just look at those eyes

Burning with wit and sparkling with mischief. Eyes that say the things your lips sometimes can’t.

Just look at those curls

Ready to be tugged by eager hands in moments of passion.

Wild, messy and ridiculous – just like you.

Just look at that smile

Waiting to bring the world to its knees.

The smile you show the world, and the smile you don’t.

The smile that makes your eyes crease at the corners.

The shy…

…and the utterly unreserved.

The smile of acceptance as you realise…

…you are so much more than your scars.

What is the #ScarredAndSexy?

The #ScarredAndSexy project aims to highlight and celebrate the beauty we may often forget is hiding behind our scars. This is the first in a series of posts that will explore this theme.
